Live imaging and migration for Windows systems with two snapshot technologies; Microsoft VSS and Paragon Hot Backup™ to guarantee fast and reliable live protection
Complete infrastructure for establishing a self-acting data protection system that is fully compliant with the set-and-forget backup policy
Migration of servers to virtual hardware (P2V) or from virtual back to physical (V2P) provide for increased availability of hardware and applications
No hardware dependency with the third generation of Paragon Adaptive Restore™; our technology guarantees any Windows since 2000 will boot on different computer hardware (P2P) by automatically injecting the required drivers and other actions crucial for this type of migration
Comprehensive recovery environments based on DOS, Linux, and WinPE are available on CD/DVD/Blu-ray, thumb drives, or Backup Capsule to quickly get systems back on track when they fail to boot. They also help to retrieve valuable information from damaged hard disks and accomplish bare-metal system deployment
Management of virtual drives in the non-destructive mode, when all changes are being saved to a snapshot to guarantee the maximum data safety possible (Connect VD)
Restore at a granular level minimizes downtime if there's no need to restore an entire image; you choose only the files you want
Boot problems correction without restore (Windows system registry modification in the off-line mode, MBR, BCD, and the Boot.ini file correction, etc.
The fastest and safest partitioning engine on the market - our product does the job with minimal time and risk
Automatic partition alignment allows to get the most of physical and virtual data storages (not all operations are supported**)
Any backup destination, including local mounted/un-mounted partitions, external storages, CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs, network shares, SFTP/FTP servers as well as the secured hidden partition (Backup Capsule)
Task scheduling and scripting to chain multiple operations into one job and automate execution
Connection of virtual drives remotely through vSphere interface to accomplish drive partitioning, data exchange, or OS migration of Windows virtual environments hosted by ESX. You’ve got the option to do these operations from one of Windows OS guests or from outside
Fast data exchange between physical and virtual disks, between virtual disks of different vendors, or between a virtual disk and its snapshots
Support for any Windows OS since XP SP3 including the latest Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
Support of GPT/uEFI configurations to successfully clone, migrate, or restore a 64-bit Windows configured to the uEFI-based boot mode; to fix uEFI related boot problems.
Support for all latest hardware, including all SCSI, IDE and SATA RAID controllers, SSD, AFD, 2TB+ and non-512B sector size disks, Blu-ray drives, USB 1.x/2.0/3.0 and IEEE 1394 (FireWire) devices, PC card storages, and many more...
Support for popular virtual machines, including MS Virtual PC, VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion, and Oracle VirtualBox 4.0
Support for GPT (GUID Partition Table) disks
Support for Microsoft dynamic disks (simple, spanned, striped, mirrored, RAID-5)
Reports on devices without drivers; searches for and installs lacking drivers from Windows repositories; notifies about boot critical devices without drivers; names devices according to model description, determines and install drivers for NICs
Incremental disk imaging
Unlike differentials, increments may not only contain data changed since the time of creating a full archive, but one of its increments as well, thus allowing to save more time and the backup storage. With this type of disk imaging method our company has introduced an innovative technology that boosts efficiency of the network backup by 200%
Set up effective backup methods for full, differential and incremental backup strategies, in physical and virtual environments
By automatically excluding MS Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Hyper-V, or VMware Server from the backup process, you provide for better backup performance of your Windows server, minimize backup storage requirements, and eliminate interference with special-purpose backup tools
Enable to create and properly configure virtual machines; employ MS VSS to synchronously migrate from several hard disks to ensure data consistency during online migration of a system, which seats on several partitions or hard disks
Improved Connect VD
Connect a virtual disk as if it’s an ordinary physical disk, thus opening up all functionality available for physical disks to virtual. You’ve now got the option to:
- Mount Paragon’s backups (.pbf images)
- Mount a virtual disk in the non-destructive mode. It’s a special read/write mode, when all changes on the connected disk are being saved to a snapshot, thus providing complete safety for the original disk’s contents. If needed, this snapshot can later be merged with its parental disk by using standard tools of virtualization software vendor.
- Connect to ESX Server through vSphere interface to accomplish drive partitioning, data exchange, or OS migration of Windows virtual environments hosted by ESX. You’ve got the option to do these operations from one of Windows OS guests or from outside.
